It is with great humility and excitement that we announce we have completed our Series A round of financing totalling $5 million from an amazing group of investors, sage advisors, trusted friends, and a wonderful network of believers and supporters.
When we first came to San Francisco three months ago the response was nothing short of breathtaking. We now get to go to work inviting and on-boarding the entire San Francisco waitlist, expanding our team (we’re hiring!), and hopefully very soon bringing our love for mail to every address in San Francisco.
It wouldn’t be possible without great people like Mike Maples at Floodgate. We’re honored to have them lead our round. Peter Thiel and Brian Singerman at Founders Fund are trusted advisors and friends, and we’re couldn’t be more gracious to have them onboard. Correlation VC, TDF Ventures, WTI, Expansion VC, Joel Peterson Capital, and Emerge DE also all substantially invested in our dream and future. Thank you.
Building a support group around Outbox has been essential to our growth. For some, it’s a crazy idea that doesn’t fully make sense until experienced first hand. For others, checking mail is now a giddy part of the day. People make Outbox possible. So it was a no-brainer when we turned to AngelList to join our journey. At the end of the day, over 80 AngelList-ers invested in our future, many of them Outbox users themselves. Working with Naval and the team and being a part of Invest Online was an honor.
From San Francisco, to London, to New York, Austin, Dubai, Paris, Washington DC, Chicago, Massachusetts, and the Netherlands — thank you, thank you, thank you. We’re coming. Hang tight.
Last week we released our shiny new Android app — one step closer to helping you take your mailbox with you anywhere you go. And today, over 150,000 pieces of mail have been digitally delivered to Bay Area super moms, digerati elites, Giants fans, and probably your neighbor down the street.
It’s been an exhilarating experience. Thanks for following us, telling your friends, and for joining the ride. Outbox has the best supporters in the world. Bear hugs all around.
Stay tuned. Big things are ahead…
Evan and Will, and the entire Outbox team
